Schuyler and Group, Good Morning!

Agricultural lime is just like fine sand, easy to model with a number of mediums.

I note that the load in the gon pretty closely resembles the plastic load that, I think, Athearn offers.  Same sort of undulating surface.

A Lake Terminal mill gondola pressed into bulk material service. Interesting. F&C produces an HO scale resin kit for this gondola. A few lettering styles are available, including this one. 


While bulk loads in a mill gon are not typical, they have occurred. I one found a photo of a 61-foot Western Maryland mill gon loaded with coal.
